Because we cannot yet physically exhibit the work of our graduate students, we have featured their work online with a microsite and social media profiles. To see their work, please visit: https://welchartdesign2020.com/
Each year, The Ernest G. Welch School of Art & Design at Georgia State University hosts a Student Juried Exhibition during which students receive awards, scholarships, and prizes. Due to unplanned circumstances, our exhibition has been moved online where all visitors can engage with the work virtually. The gallery hosted a live, online opening during which Director Joseph Peragine announced awards and visitors voted for a People’s Choice.
We would like to give a special thank you to juror, Shannon Morris, Gallery Director and Curator, Mary S. Byrd Gallery, Augusta University who worked with us through the challenges and lended a great prestige to the exhibition. We would also like to thank sponsors of the show—Binders Art Supplies, the High Museum of Art, Atlanta Botanical Garden, Burnaway, MOCA GA—and all of the generous donors of the school who have made many of these student scholarships possible.
The culminating exhibition of our undergraduate experience has also be moved online for a virtual exhibition, but will no longer be mandatory for the students graduating. The students will be invited to exhibit their work at the next Open Studio we can safely host. Until then, the work by participating students can be view by visiting the virtual gallery.
The undergraduate photography club, ExLucis organized a virtual exhibition, juried by artist Myra Green. The exhibition, titled DiverseCITY, featured student photographers in Atlanta. To view art work, visit the virtual gallery.
(Formerly scheduled for April 4) The event has been postponed until further notice, but work by former and current sculpture students were and will be shared and celebrated on our instagram, @gsu_artdesign.
